Isabelle Faus has climbed her 3rd Font 8B+ with an ascent of Memory is Parallax in Rocky Mountain National Park. The problem was originally climbed by Dave Graham in 2011. This was Isabelle's 3rd 8B+ after climbing Amandla in Rocklands in 2015 and Wheel of Chaos in 2016.

Writing on her scorecard, Faus said: 'My proudest ascent, beautiful boulder with a great line. Wasn't really sure if it would actually go down but so psyched! The day before I felt super shitty... didn't really have any expectation but to just stay in tune with it... then I found some fresh beta and took it down.'

Nine women have now climbed 8B+ or harder. Ashima Shiraishi and Kaddi Lehmann have both climbed 8C with ascents of Horizon, Sleepy Rave and Kriptos.

Here is a video of Isabelle climbing Delusion of Grandeur (8B) earlier in the year:
